The Eponymous Intellectual Dark Web (IDW) Gang

The Eponymous Intellectual Dark Web (IDW) Gang

A good summary of the intellectual Dark Web, taking it serious and trying to put it into some kind of historical context can be found on the RSA website by Julian Astle HERE.

I’ve divided 50 individuals associated with the IDW into five groups of ten: the core founders, the individual associate members (i.e. not signed up, but influential on the IDW themes), then the Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

The Good are the lefties and the independents, the Bad are the conservatives, corporates and far right ideologues, and the Ugly is a mix of unaligned quality with slippery dissemblers. No comment is intended on the physical looks of those in the Ugly list!
